    Today a baby dove came running into my store when a customer opened the door. He was unable to fly but his wings seemed to be ok (he was able to flutter and flap around). His beak appears to be broken - it's a bit out of alignment - but he is able to open and close it. He has all his feathers...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I wanted to try something with this thread that, hopefully, may help anyone who gets in a baby mourning dove. I thought it may be helpful to do a day by day account of caring for and feeding one. We do the same exact thing with a baby pigeon but the feeding amounts are different. We picked up...

    My pigeon, Muffin, who might possibly have PDD is very, very skinny but is eating a lot. Her keel bone is like a knife. Should I be offering her some hand feeding formula to try to sustain her? :(

    Please help!!!! I need help after rescuing two baby spotted turtle doves. The mum was a new mum and a regular in my yard. She has nested three times in a flimsy vine type tree outside my window and my family and I have looked on excitedly. However, the nests she builds are very flimsy and she...

    My wife and I found a nest on our porch two weeks ago. We noticed pigeons flocking on our porch for a few days before we found the eggs. We think there were actually 3 eggs, but our dog got to one before we found the nest. However, for the past two weeks the parents have been sitting...

    The brand of hand-feeding formula that I'm researching at the moment is manufactured by "Harrison's", a renowned, reputable brand of primarily-organic parrot food. For a while I've been considering their pelleted diet for Moody, as it does not contain meat and is very comparable to leading...

    My pigeon, Muffin, hasn't been acting quite that well for a little while now. She always looks terrible if she doesn't have water even for a few minutes. While "Master Toady", her mate, always acts and looks energetic. When she's thirsty, even a little bit, she gets squinty eyes and sits on...

    Well, I don't know, but Moody doesn't seem to be eating much, if any at all. She occasionally goes and takes a chomp of her corn, but she's really not interested in it. She's too busy preening, playing in water, chewing, playing, etc. She doesn't seem any different behavior wise. She's still...

    I'm raising a pigeon from day one, day 7 now, and he has developed what I guess is yeast. EVERY pigeon I raise gets it, no matter how clean I keep the utensils, and how careful I am. Crop slows down and gas builds up in it so at times it is swollen like a balloon. Had my avian vet send me the...

    Hi. Moody needs larger gravel for grit, but as it's not landscaping season, it's hard to find. I was wondering offhand if it would be possible to use AQUARIUM rocks for her grit. The uncoated kind, I guess. But they might be painted. But it might, again, be possible to find unpainted ones...
